Finally (finally!) it’s starting to feel like summer in both New York and Chicago. Once that first wave of beachy weather starts rolling in, the first thing many of us want to do is run to the racks and start shopping for some new bold, breezy and resort-ready pieces. And luckily, this season is serving up the perfect collaborative collection to provide that perky punch of color and print that we so desperately crave. Banana Republic partnered up with the cute, quirky and ultra chic label Milly by Michelle Smith for a splashy summer capsule collection, which launches today!
Inspired by the Hamptons, the Banana Republic Milly Collection is a playful, limited-edition capsule including bright, wearable tops, skirts, shorts, dresses and accessories! We got a sneak peek at the collection yesterday in the Chicago flagship store on Michigan Avenue. Pretty pleats, vibrant stripes and bobo-inspired prints popped from every corner of the Banana Republic Milly boutique and it was tough to decide which fun and flirty piece to try on first!
As for price point, Dresses start at $120 and cap out at $165, tops are $45 to $79.50, bottoms range from $55 to $89.50, and accessories (of which their are totes, baubles, wristlets, and scarves for cool nights at the oyster bake) are $29.50 to $130. Launching today only three stores in the U.S. and online, these glam limited edition pieces won’t last so pop over to bananarepublic.com and let’s get the summer started!
